Edinburgh Jazz Festival was set up in 1978 by banjo-player and guitarist, Mike Hart. Mike's initial focus was on traditional jazz and a host of events taking place for free admission in pubs. By the mid-80's the Festival had added ticketed events, and had broadened its musical policy to encompass swing and mainstream jazz and occasionally some more modern groups.
With 170 concerts over 10 days; from serious listening to exuberant dancing, from intimate late night jams to inspiring jazz legends, this year's Festival (14-23 July) promises to be another roaring success.
The 2017 programme will be announced shortly.
